The Digital Manipulations forum has always been a forum where people can get together and share photographs, and work, with others so everyone can manipulate and learn from them. There has been a tendancy towards Photos and work that people do not want touched. This is fine, however, we need to start developing our own individual show-off, or "Dispaly", threads.
What we need to do is start a thread, label it as a display. Comments and critiques would be welcome in the thread, but no manips of work by others in the thread. For example, I would start a thread called 'Michael's DisplayThread'.
Here, I would post a work I do not want others working on, and as I wanted to show more of my work, I would add it to the thread. To keep track of the thread I would just add it to my favourites list and go to it whenever I felt like dispalying some more of my work.
By nature of this forum, with the exception of Projects/Comps, all posted photogrpahs are posted with the consideration that others will be working on them. By developing these Display threads we will eliminate any problems that have been cropping up where people are upset with others for work done on either a photograph or manip they have posted.
Also, be sure that photographs you use are your own, or you have permission to use them. No photographs of movies or television shows. I had an email stating that this was done. While I did not see the photograph in question, it is not public domain just because it has been televised or released in theaters.
Somewhere in a lonely hotel room,
There's a guy starting to realize
That eternal fate has turned its back on him,
It's two a.m...........
